It’s the Weeeeeeeekkkkeeennnddd! We have a small micro-swell as predicted, and the waves are running in the waist-high-plus range at times, a long wait in between sets, but we’ll have a last gas of this swell into Saturday with favorable winds all day until our last blast of winter creeps in Sunday. Get on it now, or if you have the time to blaze down past the Cape, or pull some string in 24 to 48 hours to make it to the Caribbean, you may score some bigger, warmer surf! On the home front though, it could be fun on the small wave craft, and as we exit this moon phase, time your tides right and you can find some fun ridable waves — you’ll just have to wait for them a bit. So, what’s happening down the line?
Winter storm Regis formed in Colorado and is cruising the jet stream all the way down south then swooping up into the Mid-Atlantic off the ocean into a late season nor’easter! It’s a last gas of winter and unfortunately, the elephants will be marching by us, but we’ll have some fun mini-swell shaking out of this weather pattern. We will see the winds switch later in the weekend with a little cool down for a couple of days, as the first official day of spring won’t feel so springy for us — but then again, at least we don’t have to shovel it like up north! Into next week we might see some little bumps in swell but no true swell increase until later in next week (but too far off to tell for sure). Until then, enjoy your spring break for those groms that have off, and for the select few of you that can skip town to catch this one down south, we hope you score!
